Bachelor of Laws (L.LB)

Course code – G34

Our premise is that the study of law should inculcate in students the requisite knowledge, skills and attitudes for a broad range of theories and practice areas. This proceeds from the fact that law is a contextual discipline informed by the social, economic, political and cultural context in which it operates. Indeed, law always interacts, is shaped by, and in turn shapes, the context in which it operates. This contextual nature of law will inform our teaching.
